About us

We are an AI Cyber Security Insurtech start-up based in central London. Founded in 2017, Bewica’s mission is to use A.I. and other technology to make it easy for companies to understand their cyber risks and take the most effective actions. For this, we offer insurance, advice and tools. We are at the cross-roads of two high-growth markets: cyber insurance and cyber security.

We have also built a machine-learning based cyber breach prediction model which we are evolving for ever better risk quantification.

We are now looking to grow the team as a result of Bewica’s successful development. The Lead Software Engineer is a newly created role working closely with the CEO and alongside the CTO.

About the role

We are looking for a hands-on leader for our small, excellent engineering team which operates from two European locations.

Your focus will be for us to have the best engineering team, platform tools, and processes.

You’ll collaborate closely with the sales and marketing team to establish a roadmap and timeline for technology and platform development so that our solutions become ever more compelling for our customers and partners.

Your expertise will lean towards architecture, team-building, real-time applications, data and analytics, and software development.
